I am new here and i have had a problem with i think depersonalization... i will be fine in the mornings usually... but around 1-2:00 it hits me. I have bad anxiety about it and get freaked out. I just want to make sure it is not just me and i will outgrow it. i am only 18 years old and i just moved away to college so that could have some part in it. I got mono back in October of last year which could cause some of the anxiety and probably this as well. When i am tired, it gets worse. I have researched and seen the symptoms of depersonalization and i do have them. I feel out of it... tired... maybe even like i am in a dream... i need people to tell me i am not the only one who feels this way... to make me feel better... i get scared to leave the house or go somewhere that i do not know.. is this normal? and will i ever outgrow this?

It sounds like the typical symptoms of DP/DR. These feelings are normal if you have the disorder. Some people outgrow it, others don't. But it doesn't mean you have to continue feeling this way forever, there are heaps of ways to treat it. Try therapy or self help, try to reach out to your loved ones and seek for support.

This is interesting because my symptoms also first appeared in their full strength about exactly 3 years ago when I had just moved to a new city to attend high school. I didn't think much of the link between those two things until just this week when my symptoms reappeared after a ~2,5 year good phase. I have just recently moved to a new country to attend university and I'm fairly sure the strange environment and new people I don't yet trust are playing some part in why my DP/DR has resurfaced. Making sure you have people around you you can talk to is probably the best advice I can give, also to seek out professional help if things just get too much to handle. When I got my first symptoms I went to see several doctors but by the time they gave me a diagnosis I was already feeling much better because my social safety net had improved a lot so I never felt the need for therapy or other treatment (blame the slowness of the bureucracy...).

Everything will be okay. I know how you feel. It is tough, and scary, and can really freak you out. But just go with it. Don't fight it, but also don't let it consume you. Try to observe it. We are all feeling the same way here. I am in the same boat. Try therapy and/or a psychiatrist. I have both, and they really help me.. Therapy and medication make this somewhat bearable to me. I live a more productive life now with the right medication and therapy. Try not to worry. Worrying just makes it worse. And keep reaching out on here, it helps me a lot when I just type out how I'm feeling, and someone responds
